Featured Review

Current Employee - Pastry Sous Chef

I have been working at Harrods full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Pretty amazing team, well supported by management - Many opportunities for people who take initiative - Great benefits and discount - Good staff cafeteria - Great comms from management - Weekly... Bulletin

Cons

Quite large company, that you can feel lost in, but having a great team / department makes up for this.

Current Employee - Boots Customer Assistant

I have been working at Boots part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Relaxed and enjoyable workplace. Everyone is always positive and everyone helps one another, especially if there are complaints/ problems with customers.

Cons

Only Con is dealing with customer complaints, however, that comes with the job so you just need to know how to communicate and deal with people.
